Land Use Planning

Bruce County Land Use Planning helps communities manage change by ensuring every planning decision reflects the public interest and the needs of the individual communities that are impacted. 

Don’t feel you have to navigate the process on your own. We know how it works and we are here to navigate it with you.

Bruce County is seeking input on a path for the future health of our communities that will inform the new Official Plan. Let's Plan the Bruce. Together.

Economic Development

From rugged escarpment to sandy beaches and rolling countryside, Bruce County’s natural landscape is as unique and varied as the people who call it home. Bruce County is where the explorers, the dreamers, the get-out-and-doers come to connect with what matters in life, find opportunities to grow, and be part of a community that cares about one another.

Bruce County Economic Development focuses on business development, workforce development and community development.

In a nutshell, we support entrepreneurs and community growth. The Business to Bruce program facilitates business foundations; marketing and promotion of business opportunities; and the necessary supports, outreach and education for business success. We promote and market Bruce County's best and most authentic experiences through Explore the Bruce. And through the Spruce the Bruce community development program, Bruce County helps build vibrant and welcoming communities. We work with partners at all levels to ensure sustainable growth, economic development, infrastructure and resource support.

Bruce County's major sectors are agriculture, tourism and energy. Developing opportunity and capacity for innovation around these sectors is a key priority.

The future looks bright in Bruce.
